This weekend the average score across the whole game was only 34 points, so despite looking like a table full of low-ish scores in the 30’s and 40’s, the majority of Buckets managers actually performed quite well. Two totals jump out towards the top of the table. Hedgehog’s 66 points, based on the brave/stupid decision to make Papiss Cisse their captain, wins the manager of the week award and secures their bye into the first round proper of the Buckets Cup. RayCrawfordsCrackers couldn’t quite match that to notch their eighth weekly award, but their 60 points was more than enough to clinch them the February Manager of the Month prize.

There’s no reason why a reduction in the amount of fixtures should lead to such a low scoring average, but with four of the eight games finishing 1-0, and only 15 goals scored, it was one of those weekends in which defences came out on top. Both of our 60+ scorers had Daryl Janmaat in their defence – a wise choice considering Newcastle were up against Villa this weekend. Janmaat assisted Cisse’s goal and is now the second highest assisting defender behind Leighton Baines. In fact, only seven other players can beat his total of seven assists, and he betters the totals of the likes of Ozil, Cazorla, Nasri and Silva. RCC’s had Jason Puncheon in their midfield – our highest scoring player of the week. Palace were the only team to score three this weekend, and Puncheon had a hand in all of them. Team mate Glen Murray is our bargain buy of the week, despite being sent off.

Player of the week – Jason Puncheon – 14 points. Palace looking safer with every passing week.

Bargain of the week – Glen Murray – 9 points. Three in two and one week off.

Donkey of the week – Wes Brown – -2 points. It wouldn’t be a donkey ist without Wes Brown on it. Poor sod didn’t even do anything.

Goal of the week – Jordan Henderson. Narrowly beating Liverpool’s other goal from their defeat of City
